A comprehensive oral examination is performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit. At regular check-up exams, your dentist will include the following:

  • Diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay in places not visible to the naked eye,  and bone damage from gum disease or infection. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the mouth areas for any signs of oral cancer.
    Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination for tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay.
    Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
    Updating your medical history.  Certain medical conditions and medications may affect your risk of disease and your dental treatment.
